AI and advanced language models like ChatGPT-4 are revolutionizing various industries. Now with the newest version of AI (ChatGPT-4) released this March, things are speeding up even faster.
As you might know, the more people use AI, the better it gets trained and generates results. Now, even us,: web writers, editors, and career advisors are not sure if our jobs will even exist a few years from now. Maybe our jobs would still be around, but will be done way different?
I, (yes, human thinking!) assume productivity will increase with a magnitude the coming years for wide avierty of jobs. Increase of productivity usually leads to lower demand for such jobs. However, AI will also generate new jobs that are just not around yet!
However, AI will be making certain jobs and human traits increasingly replaceable. With the help of AI (yes, ironic, isn't it?) we created a list of 20 jobs that may be significantly impacted in the near future, along with the human skills and traits need for these jobs that could be replaced by this technology.
List of Jobs That might be Replaced soon by AI
